Fighting for a better future? We need your help.

Creating a more equitable world takes a lot of time and energy, but at Kiva we’re in it for the long haul. 100% of money lent on Kiva goes to funding loans. That means we rely on donations from people like you to make this work possible. For a limited time, if you donate $35 or more, a $25 bonus will be added to your account (you’ll get an email once it’s there).

A loan of $1,000 helped to buy traditional clothes for her shop.

Josefa's story

Josefa is 20 years old, and she is married. She has a shop to generate income for her family. She has been thinking about how to run a big business but she does not have enough working capital.

She felt better when she applied for her first loan, and now she is applying for her second loan of US$ 1,000. She will buy some additional supplies to keep in her store, such as traditional clothes. She is happy with TRM (Tuba Rai Metin) that it offers loans to poor people.
